Art for Art’s Sake, or for Mankind’s Sake
Mohammed Ali, aka Aerosol Arabic, is a graffiti artist who has travelled the globe painting street corners with his vibrant murals. Not only does Ali bring colour to the urban grey spaces, but he bring something of meaning, murals with a message, that deal with some of the issues that exist in the world’s multicultural and multi-faith cities.
He is well known for combining graffiti art with islamic script and patterns within his work, along with his universal messages of peace, justice and unity. His art has been reported by global media as work that ‘brings together people from different faith communities’. He was a recent winner at the ITV South Bank Show Awards.
